first of all I have to admit I'm definitely not an expext with tex stuffes ; I have found several post related to perl script not working with latex but I can't figure out what is happening on my computer.
So, I try to use pdfcrop
https://www.ctan.org/pkg/pdfcrop. I downloaded the pdfrcrop.pl file but the documentation for windows was pretty blurry to me.
I have been able to run perl pdfcrop.pl and now I have :
When I type in the command prompt:
- pdfcrop --version, I get:
pdfcrop 2012/11/02 v1.38
- perl --version, I get
This is perl 5, version 22, subversion 0 <v5.22.0> ...
Now I am using pdfcrop through knitr and I get the error message :
cropping figure/pyfig.pdf pdfcrop: The Perl interpreter could not be found.
When I try to run directely pdfcrop in the Terminal, it stops at the second steps:
*Copy input file to temporary file !!!Error copy failed, <No such file or directory/Access denied>
Thanks a lot for the help !
